Teach basic building skills at Lighthouse Youth Centers

Work alongside teens in Southeastern Wisconsin to teach basic building skills and grow their confidence through small DIY projects, wood working, and tool usage.

Change the future for young people struggling to find their way by teaching them valuable trade skills. By providing basic tool training and spiritual mentoring you can foster a connection to their Savior, increase their self-esteem, and create a path for them to have a productive job.


Are you a DIYer? Do you want to be a Christian mentor for children? Join Build Up at Lighthouse Youth Centers to provide real-world building skills and Christian encouragement to Milwaukee and Appleton area kids. No real building experience needed.
